Ethics by Judith Jarvis Thomson( Book )

2 editions published between 1976 and 2003 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Ethics of Aristotle is one half of a single treatise of which his Politics is the other half. Both deal with one and the same subject. This subject is what Aristotle calls in one place the 'philosophy of human affairs;' but more frequently Political or Social Science. In the two works taken together we have their author's whole theory of human conduct or practical activity, that is, of all human activity which is not directed merely to knowledge or truth. The two parts of this treatise are mutually complementary, but in a literary sense each is independent and self-contained

In [this volume], Aristotle sets out to examine the nature of happiness. He argues that happiness consists in "activity of the soul in accordance with virtue"--For example, with moral virtues, such as courage, generosity and justice, and intellectual virtues, such as knowledge, wisdom and insight.
